Minimal Scripted Configuration, Eric Radman
2021-06-02 @ 18:45 - Zoom

Configuration management is term that is usually used to describe a declarative approach to systems, but a new generation of tools has emerged that take a different tact. By providing only the minimal scaffolding for writing scripts, it is possible to build configuration management that scale with the complexity of the environment. In this discussion we will consider three different architectures: Agent-Server, Gather-Fact, and Remote Execution.

For Zoom meeting details, email to rsvp AT, and details will be sent on the day of the meeting. Q&A will be via IRC on, channel #nycbug
